Folllowing further incidents at the crossroads, and evidence to show that soem drivers continue to drvie straight across the crossroads without stopping, Kent Highways Services have been investigating further measures to assist with road safety in this area.

They asked  the Parish Council to coinsider two possibilites at their meeting on 3rd December : the implemetation of red surfacing with granite sets at the junction, and the possibility of adding double yellow lines around the corners of the junction.

The Parish Councils  response to these proposals was as follows:

The Parish Council has no objection to the use of red surfacing and granite sets, in fact they would encourage it. They would like KHS to pursue improved signage, including a vehicular activated flashing sign added to the current advanced warning sign located 100m from the junction on the Lamberhurst Road, as well as  permanent illumination of the  STOP sign, on the approach from the Lamberhurst direction. The view of the Parish Councillors was that they would not support the implementation of double yellow lines at the junction’.

There is further information available on this topic on our 'Traffic Calming Measures' pages of the website.
